Lost Gold & Diamonds Engagement Ring at Royal Hawaiian Beach Waikiki...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This ring find began when I got a text from Andrew who was on work travel to the islands as a sports photographer from Knoxville, Tennessee.  While enjoying the Royal Hawaiian beach with his lovely wife Jessica her Gold & Diamonds Engagement Ring went missing when she discovered it gone in their hotel room.  They had the where withall  to go back to the spot on the beach and begin a search.  After that attempt Andrew googled lost ring Waikiki and found theringfinders website.  I had just gotten home from work and since this was a dry sand search I told Andrew I’d load up my gear and get there as quick as possible.  No traffic and no parking issues so I arrived about 20 minutes later.  Jessica explained the circumstances of the loss and the most likely place would be where she shook off her beach towel.  Thankfully, that area was free of sunbathers so I was able to start an immediate grid search.  I could tell Jessica was devastated and had been crying so I wanted this to be quick find.  On the second leg of the search I got a solid #16 on the Manticore.  I looked over at the two of them and said I think we have it.  It took two scoops but no doubt there was Jessica’s beautiful Engagement Ring in the scoop.  I let her reach in and recover it as cheers went up on the beach.  There was some clapping and whistling and someone told Jessica that took 2 minutes and 32 seconds.  Not my fastest, but right up there.  I actually turned my detector on once and the ring was directly under the coil!  We shared a few hugs and Andrew said thanks for being our Hero! I don’t know about that but I sure do enjoy a successful hunt.  Aloha to Jessica & Andrew!
